RE: Lottie Romanowski
No problem Jim. By the way, remember when I asked if you might know some other volunteers that we might be able to get together with to try and tackle Mount Olivet....well my brother Richard and I have met Renee and her husband and Karen and G. Brownstone and have kind of teamed up to see if we can "eat this elephant"...things are working out pretty good. Requests are almost to 200 from over 400. They are a great group of people. It has been a true pleasure to meet them. Hope to meet you someday! Take care!

Still Need Photos?
I noticed that you have quite a few requests for photos for the St. Alphonsus Church graveyard, and you list your current location in the same area. Why don't you go over there yourself and take pictures? If you have a good reason why you can't, I can stop by and get those images.

RE: Max Scott
Hi Jim. I transferred Max Scott back to you because you had made all my suggested changes, you were the originator of the memorial and I am not related. I have re-added him and sent him back to you for safe keeping. Thanks for your help.

RE: Actor Francis Matthews
Hi Jim, just saw your note.

I think you want to request him Famous? I wasn't sure. If that's the case they won't take it for two reasons. First is it's a Burial Unknown and second there is a commercial watermark on the photo.

Michael Nestor
Philip Nester Buckminster
The entry for Philip Nester Buckminster has his middle name spelled Nestor.
The tombstone has the correct spelling of Nester.

Thanks,
Mike Nestor

Do you know the plot location for Joseph Weil? I called Mount Glenwood Cemetery West and they are unable to find it.
Thanks for your help!
